Buy Now Pay Later solution Uplift has announced an exclusive partnership with Emirates for Canada and U.S. customers.
Available now, Emirates passengers can utilize Uplift’s pay over time monthly installments, rather than paying in full at booking.
Customers will see the total cost of their trip upfront allowing customers to see how an upgraded travel experience in Emirates' Business class, for example, can be accessible for only a slight increase to the monthly payment.
With Uplift there are no fees including no late fees or prepayment penalties and travel can happen before customers complete their payments.
“As the world’s largest international airline, we are thrilled to offer flexible payment solutions, making worldwide travel available to more customers. Providing convenient payment options is one of the ways we are delivering on our customer-centric approach in everything we do,” said Essa Sulaiman Ahmad, Emirates’ divisional vice-president for USA and Canada. “Through our research and discovery, we selected Uplift as our BNPL solution provider in North America due to their deep knowledge of travel and rich experience working with the top airlines in the industry.”
“Uplift’s proven track record of supporting airlines in offering customers more flexibility along with driving additional bookings and growing ancillary spend is a perfect fit with Emirates luxury air experience and global footprint,” added Tom Botts, Uplift's chief commercial officer. “We are honored to be selected as Emirates BNPL solution of choice.”
